Silent Witness Season 27 Release Date Speculation

Silent Witness Season 27 is officially happening. Yes, we will get to see more of the characters and thrilling cases. Silent Witness has already started filming and will probably release in January of 2024.

Mark Lindsay, BBC studios commented, “This is an exciting time for one of our longest-running dramas that continues to thrill audiences here in the UK — and in over 200 territories around the world. We look forward to seeing the creative opportunities relocating production of Silent Witness to the West Midlands will undoubtedly bring.”

What To Expect From Silent Witness Season 27?

In the end, Jack and Nikki are seen on a beach, in love, and in a romantic moment, Jack lifts her up. This gives us hope for a potential romance in the upcoming season, with trials and tribulations coming up from their shared past and their work line. 

Emilia Fox, the lead actress, revealed to an outlet that she keeps a chart to track the possible storylines while shooting the show. 

She said, “I find it really helpful. We often film out of sequence, and so you have to remember what information the character already knows during certain scenes, because otherwise — and particularly at the speed that we film — we’re coming into scenes thinking ‘Where are we in this story?’ and ‘Was that in the last script or was that here?’” 

Moreover, we can expect the gripping plots and mysteries that are a part of the show, and unique ways of solving them. Whatever happens, it will be an exciting few weeks for us viewers!

Silent Witness Season 27 Cast & Characters 

All of the main characters of the show are set to make a return in the new season. We will see the following characters!

  • Emilia Fox as Dr. Nikki Alexandria
  • David Caves as Jack Hodgson 
  • Rhiannon May’s as Cara Connelly

Fox seems excited about this development as she says, “I have always said that I would like to do this job while I love it, and I still love it. And they might say, ‘No, we don’t want you to do this anymore,’ and that’s someone else’s decision.”

The show will also be using virtual production for the first time ever. The producer expanded, “That’s going to be a new and exciting way forward that has never happened on this show before.”


The show Silent Witness season 27 is on the cards and we can’t wait to see it! The wonderful characters will be there to meet us in January 2024 for our enjoyment. Hopefully!
